Here it is for all you baby stalkers: the obligatory baby bump watch post! I have been doing extremely well, no more sickness, not overly tired, just normal, with a little growing bubby belly which still surprises Matt when he runs his hand over my stomach!
The heat a week ago knocked me for six though, I was extremely tired all day, doing very little, trying to keep hydrated as alarmingly the baby bump disappeared for awhile as I was probably too dehydrated. Naughty mama. We’re gearing up for more hot hot hot weather so I’m bracing myself.
I will actually be 20 weeks tomorrow (and haven’t taken my 19 week photo yet!), and I haven’t been to town to find a ‘small cantaloupe’ so that one might have to go by the wayside. It seems the last 20 weeks have gone slowly and quickly all at the same time – the first 14 weeks slowly because it was all secrets and sickness, but the last 6 weeks have gone fast since Christmas. I’m sure the next 20 weeks will fly by, and before long we’ll be meeting our little boy or girl!
We had our 20 week scan last week (at 19 weeks and 1 day) – baby was growing normally, giving us a wave and measuring bang on 19 weeks and 2 days. Good baby. With a very lanky father, born 9 pounds 10 ounces, and a mother whose head circumference has always measured off the pediatrician’s scale, I was quite worried I’d be birthing a giant! So far, so good.
So, things are ticking along well, nothing to report really but no news is good news. I’m continuing to make lists, reading a little bit on baby and birth books but not much to be honest, crocheting little things for our Winter bub and gathering information from helpful friends and family on best baby products.
